LOS ANGELES, Jan. 18 (UPI) -- Famed drummer Dallas Taylor died Sunday morning, his wife Patti announced on Facebook.
No cause of death was disclosed.
Taylor was best known as a member of the iconic folk band Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, but he also performed with Van Morrison, the Paul Butterfield touring band and Clear Light.
A former drug addict, Taylor underwent a liver transplant around 1990. His website said he has worked the last nearly 30 years as an addiction specialist and interventionist.
"This morning at 2:30 am I lost the love of my life Dallas W Taylor, he came into my life almost 18 yrs ago and saved me as much as i may have saved him," Patti posted on Facebook.
"To me he was just a Good Man, a Good Friend, a Good Father, a Good Grandfather or Pop Pop, a Great Drummer and much beloved by many," she continued. "I cannot even find the words to put down to say how grateful I am for the many friends and family who have been there for both of us these many days he has spent in the hospital, especially last night. I know he is a peace. He will be missed beyond words, it is so very hard to imagine my life without him by my side, but i feel his love even as i write these words."
